My Tehran For Sale
A film by Granaz Moussavi

Farsi and English , with subtitles in English
Iran, 2009 (97 minutes)

Synopsis
In this riveting, insiderâs perspective on life in Iranâs capital city, Marziehâa terminally ill actressâwearily relates her desperate quest for political asylum through a series of interviews with an unsympathetic government official. Beginning with details of her doomed relationship with an Iranian-born Australian and their plan to relocate to Adelaide, she recounts her struggle to work as an actress under Iranâs current regime, her hope for a future ultimately dashed by the devastating discovery of her illness, and her need to âescapeâ the only home she has ever known. Set against the backdrop of Tehranâs thriving arts culture, and framed through a series of artful and dramatic flashback sequences, poet-turned-filmmaker Granaz Moussavi boldly registers the trials of a modern woman struggling to flourish in Iranâs contemporary political climate.
